Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a safe alternative to waxing and shaving.

How does laser hair removal work?

A laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light. Different types of lasers produce different colors of light. The color of light produced by a particular laser is one of the keys to its effect on hair follicles.

The light emitted by the system is the most effectively absorbed frequency by your hair follicles. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporize the pigment, disabling numerous follicles at a time, to eliminate or significantly impede the hair growth.

The lasers “chilled tips” protect and cool the upper layers of the skin before, during, and after each pulse while directing the laser energy to the root.

Does it hurt?

Most patients describe the treatment as the “snap” of a rubber band against the skin. Numbing agents are available upon request. Most patients are able to complete their procedure without any topical or oral pain medication.

Should I stop shaving before being treated?

No, you should actually shave up to and the day of treatment. DO NOT pluck, wax or bleach the hair. These methods alter the hair follicle and leave no pigment for the light to be attracted to for effective results.

What happens if I have been in the sun?

The laser works best if you have not been tanning for at least 14 days. You can be treated with a tan but much less aggressively. Temporary burning is more likely to occur.

Are there any side effects?

Depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment and skin type, a small percentage of patients may experience mild blistering or burns. Hyper or hypopigmentation may occur. This is usually not permanent and should fade over time. Always read your consent forms carefully prior to treatment.
